Sweet Nothings About Us

“We just watched it! Wow, we LOVE it! Amazing work! We absolutely LOVE the highlights!! We are gonna have some family over this weekend and invite some friends over next week to have a “viewing” party haha.”

–   Christine & Anthony   :]

“From the very moment I reached out to Travis, He and his team have been very responsive and accommodating. Travis takes the time to really know his clients because each client is different and he wants the couple’s personality to be shown through his work. Not only does Travis and his team do great work, but they are very responsive and easy to work with. I was actually going to opt out on getting a videographer for the wedding because I thought it would be too expensive, but 8kindsofsmile was very affordable and they create high quality work. My husband and I are very pleased with how everything turned out and we are so glad we went with 8kindsofsmiles. Our family and friends loved our video!!”

–   Nancy & Paul   :]

“My husband and I hired 8 Kinds of Smiles to be our videographer for our October wedding. Travis and his team came highly recommended from 2 of our friends, and we fell in love with his work after seeing his portfolio. It was an absolute pleasure to work with Travis and his second shooter Anna – in fact, they were one of our favorite vendors to work with for our wedding! Everything went smoothly, from our initial email encounter, to the actual wedding day, and finally to the delivery of the final highlights video. Travis and Anna were able to beautifully summarize our wedding day and we could not have been happier with the end results. They did everything they could to make sure that we were thrilled with the final product, and we truly appreciate the extra steps they took to make it perfect. Even if you are in the Bay Area, do not be discouraged to reach out to Travis and his team as they do travel to various locations. Their packages are very reasonably priced, especially given the fact that they provide high quality coverage for the entire wedding day. 8 Kinds of Smiles was definitely a well worth it investment, and we highly recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding videographer!”

–   Tina & Jason   :]

“Words cannot express how beautiful our same day edit was!! So many compliments from all our guests about the amazing video Travis put together for us to see during the reception. Definitely will be passing his information along to anyone who needs a videographer. Very nice team and so very easy to work with that it didn’t feel weird to be recorded all day. 8 kinds of Smiles offers a variety of packages to suit your needs. We went with the all day package with same day edit and raw footage, and we are so happy that we got it. Thank you for spending the day with us and capturing our special day. These memories mean the world to us!”

–   ThyVan & Brent   :]

“My husband and I can’t help it but keep playing over and over our Same Day Edit. Travis and his crew (Jason) are so talented and hard working. The video is so touching and he truly captured all those special moments. We loved working with them and recommend 8 Kinds of Smiles to everyone! Thank you again Travis and Jason!!!”

–   Phuong & Richard   :]

“My husband and I are incredibly happy with our wedding highlights and the service and quality Travis and Anna put in. We had our wedding in September and were able to share our highlights within weeks and got out final product plus raw footage in a month. We were looking for a videographer who was able to create a great memorable story of our big day and not just random clips. Travis does exactly that and captures everything. He is really talented and professional. He was easy to get in contact with by email and phone and kept us up to date on our wedding video. Pricing is very affordable and I love that there isn’t a maximum hour. Especially for us it was going to be a long day, and we wanted to incorporate everything. Travis had one other assistant, Anna. They work so well together and with others. They were with us the whole day and made everything so stress free, from getting ready early morning, tea ceremony, and photo session and throughout our whole wedding. I highly recommend Travis and his team! I cannot my thank yous enough. Best ever!”

–   Sally & Nobby   :]

“Anthony and I watched the wedding highlights so many times and we loved every second of it. I love both the songs and how it came together. Thanks so much. :) You are amazing!”

–   Michelle & Anthony   :]

“Choosing a wedding videographer could be overwhelming with so many options out there. But when my wife and I met with Travis for the first time, he asked us questions about our relationship that let us know he was passionate about his craft. Aside from providing us with great footage, Travis was responsive and patient throughout the process, which made it easier when we were juggling so many other decisions. You can see in his work that he truly enjoys capturing the love and magic of a wedding day.”

–   Trinh & Philip   :]

“I was referred to Travis by my best friend Annie! After being in her wedding and seeing her wedding video it was an easy decision! Travis was so great to work with! I had to push my wedding back half a year and he was still able to accommodate my husband and I. Andddd we didn’t lose our deposit so that was a huge plus!! He responded to all emails I’ve sent him rather quickly and just made the whole experience a breeze. We hardly even notice him recording on the day of our wedding, but he sure captured every special moment. That’s how good he is! He made it very natural and not like we are awkwardly forced to be on camera. He truly captured us being us! Highly recommend Travis and his team for your special day! Thank you again Travis !!!!”

–   Christine & Henry   :]

“Travis and John at 8 Kinds of Smiles did an AMAZING job with our wedding video. People are still talking about our same day edit. If you are debating whether or not to get this, I highly recommend you do because not only is it a gorgeous touch, but it’s something your guests will remember. The full video edit is great as well. My husband and I are able to relive our wedding over again each time we watch it…including his father’s very long speech. I’ve previously seen their work on their blog, so they’ve been my first choice even before I got engaged. I couldn’t be happier that we chose to go with Travis and his team. Thank you so much for capturing all the wonderful moments of our special day.”

–   Mimi & Brandon   :]

“We just watched the highlights and can’t tell you how emotional we got watching it. (Liem was crying..I teared up a bit.) It is SOOOO beautiful!!! The day went by so quickly that we didn’t get to absorb anything in. Thanks so much for such an amazing job capturing it all. We loveee it!!”

–   Michelle & Liem   :]

“I had looked at many wedding videographers and spent months looking for a company that suited my main criteria: that their videos of other couples successfully captured the happiness and emotions such that I would cry when watching these videos. Well 8 Kinds of Smiles did that for me and I knew then that I wanted to have them capture my day. I met up with Travis and although he seem like a very quiet guy, he was extremely flexible and organized. During the whole process he made everything very easy to deal with. He has strong communication skills and kept me up to date of when exactly when I should expect the highlight videos etc. and was accommodating to make any changes that I wanted. However, I was very happy with what he had produced and did not need to make any changes. Travis really has the gift to capture everything including the emotions and weave it together into a beautiful fairy tale. Overall, I am very satisfied with his work and I would highly recommend him to anybody.”

–   Kim & Chuong   :]

“love love LOVEEEEE 8 Kinds of Smiles! If you’re looking for a videographer to capture every precious detail of your special day, 8 Kinds of Smiles is the team you’re looking for. My husband and I were very close to ending the day without shedding any tears until Travis played our Same Day Edit at the reception. Once Travis played that video, it was like a waterworks show streaming down our faces. Since the day goes by so quickly that you don’t get a chance to enjoy every special moment of it, it’s great to have a video to highlight the important moments throughout the day and be able to watch it before the night is over. Also, I misread his packages but in the end, Travis was very accommodating and was able to add the extra video that I wanted. Travis is also very quick to respond to any questions or concerns you may have. Everyone who’s planning a wedding and asks me about my wedding videographer, I always tell them I highly recommend 8 Kinds of Smiles.”

–   Mary & Scott   :]

“Hi Travis, Omg… I can’t stop viewing our video. So awesome and adorable! I catch myself tearing up from time to time. Thank you for capturing all those moments and conveying it on video.”

–   Alyssa & Rogel   :]

“Hi Travis, I absolutely love the SDE! You did an amazing job and it was so quick! Thank you for everything. Looking forward to the DVDs!!!”

–   Linh & Tai   :]

“My experience with Travis throughout our entire wedding process was quite phenomenal. Text and emails were responded to very quickly and appointments were easily made or rescheduled. We opted for the same day edit (SDE), extended cut, and DVD. I felt the cinematography, artistic value, camera angles, audio quality, and pricing were all top notch in quality and value. Travis and Jason spent an entire day with us shooting, from 6 am all the way to 10:30 pm. The SDE was well received by family and guests. Travis has a certain passion for his work and it definitely comes across in all the small details. He managed to shoot everything without any obtrusiveness while capturing all the small details. All the uncles and aunts got their moment of fame (as expected in an Asian wedding), and no complaints or critique from family or friends.”

–   Diana & Larry   :]

“We hired Travis to shoot some video for us to show at our wedding reception. Not only was all the footage beautifully shot with excellent sound, but Travis himself was an absolute pleasure to do business with. He was extremely organized and professional from start to finish. He made us both feel comfortable talking on camera and his prices were completely reasonable. I’m so grateful we found him and I would recommend him very highly.”

–   Stephanie   :]

“We are very fortunate to pick 8 Kinds of Smiles for our wedding videography. We loved working with them! We are so appreciative of all the hard work Travis and Mai put into our wedding. Travis was great during the planning process — professional and responsive. We were planning a wedding from out of state, but we were able to sort out all the details through emails. We discussed the timeline and important shots and flow of the video, and he took the time to get to know us as people and a couple. Our highlight video is incredible and all of our family and friends love it. It captures so many memorable moments from the wedding. Most of all, it is truly artistic, well-edited and special. I know we will watch it over and over again. We highly recommend 8 Kinds of Smiles!”

–   Minh & Duy   :]

“OMG!!!! Thien and I both absolutely love the video. I really like the use of different music, and how you built up the emotions and excitement of the wedding/reception. I didn’t really cry at all during my wedding day (which really surprised me), but watching the video brought me to tears!! Thanks Travis! =P Thien says the video is one of the best he’s seen. =D”

–   Ai-Viet & Thien   :]

“Oh my goodness we totally love the video. You did an amazing job and are so talented. We can’t thank you enough. It turned out perfect.”

–   Jen & Danny   :]

“Travis and his team are awesome!! We had our wedding last September and everything turned out great! Prior to the wedding, meeting up with him was pretty simple. He was professional, straightforward and easy to work with. On our wedding day, he was on time and made sure he captured all the important moments of our day. We had a surprise same day edit that my sister decide to add to our reception and he did a fabulous job! In such a short amount of time, he nailed it without a doubt and brought tears to our eyes. We highly recommend him and encourage you to book him early! Give him a try and he won’t disappoint you. Thx again for making our day so special! Five star all the way!”

–   Huong & Paul   :]

“Travis and his team are AMAZING. Planning a wedding is extremely stressful and gets extremely pricy, but 8 Kinds of Smiles provide an awesome package and the price you pay is worth every dollar spent! Travis is so prompt when it comes to responding to me about questions and getting back to me in a timely manner. After the wedding I got my highlight video which was amazing, and the extended cut shortly after. He did not disappoint at all. He is so good at what he does and I loved the quality of the DVD. Choosing 8 Kinds of Smiles is the best decision you will make for your wedding as he captures all the important parts of the day! Hurry and book! Thanks again for all your hard work, I would recommend you to anyone any day!”

–   Jenny & David   :]

“Hey Travis! This looks totally awesome!!! We loved it!!!!!! And love the changes. You are a genius at what you do. :)”

–   MaiThu & Gene   :]

“Travis and his team are nothing short of amazing!!! I can not even express enough how happy I am with his work and how much I enjoyed working with him from start to finish. From the first email to inquire about pricing until the last one about dropping off my final products, he was extremely professional, helpful, and always there to answer any questions I had. His packages are extremely budget friendly but the results are amazing and worth every penny! I was beyond stressed the day of my wedding but whenever I watch my highlight & extended cut video they make me smile because Travis was able to capture and document every special moment that day (and despite being able to capture everything, he and his team were never in the way) My family and friends all love our videos and I have gotten many inquiries from brides-to-be about 8KS and I have sent everyone Travis’ contact info and will continue to do so whenever anybody asks. Thank you again 8KS for being a part of our wedding day!”

–   Annie & Hieu   :]

“It’s hard to give Travis and his team at 8 kinds of smiles the appropriate recognition that they deserve for their great professional work that they provided for us on our wedding day. I’ve told Travis this before but I’m going to say it again in this review…..he’s definitely got the “IT” factor to capture the most poignant and funniest moments of your wedding day. He’s professional, he’s easy going, he allows you to be natural, funny, dorky, and emotional. His professionalism shows in his repeated attempts to meet up with you to get to know you and to touch base with any agendas or appropriate information that he may need to know for the big day. I had asked him to include my proposal video along with the same day edit for my wedding and he was absolutely CLUTCH in his delivery. Getting to witness two of the most important days of our lives played out during our reception in front of all our loved ones was one of the most emotional and surreal moments of our lives. Many of our guests were in tears and loved watching the proposal and SDE. Our finished product was super awesome and not only were we happy with it, but our parent’s LOVED their vietnamese version as well (any couple with traditional parents knows how difficult it is to please parents nowadays with wedding videos). When Travis says he will customize the video to your preference and liking, he literally means it….I was able to adjust and change anything I wanted (music, scenes, speeches) and I changed A LOT!! Once I was absolutely happy with every second of my video, Travis then sends it in for final production. To me, that meant a great deal because I was able to include every part that I felt important to my family and delete or shorten the not so important parts. His flexibility and willingness to change everything was greatly appreciated. I’ve thanked Travis and his team a billion times but I never feel that it’s enough because he’s helped to capture a day that my husband and I will cherish and remember FOREVER..and for that, THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts. You guys are ACKA-Awesome!!! I definitely recommend this team to all engaged couples out there…no doubt one of our best wedding investments ever!!!! C&D”

“My husband and I are very happy with Travis Do and his associate’s work. They are very professional and easy to work with. We got a same day edit/wedding highlights, extended cut, and a copy of the raw video and could not be much happier with the results. Not to mention that we had a great value for all the work they have done for us. Thanks again 8 Kinds of Smiles.”

–   Lesley & Jay   :]

“Thank you to our wedding videographer, Travis Do, of 8 Kinds of Smiles for recreating our moment once again. Our wedding turned out beautiful as it shows in these highlights which you have choreographed for us. I am sure it took a lot of time and patience to get through while capturing many more other beautiful weddings at the same time. We are aware many of our friends in OC have also hired Travis as their wedding videographer. I can assure you, he does a wonderful job and provides you with a lot of patience to provide you his finishing touch. He will also run his work by you first for any needed revisions before he proceeds to post into his website. All the more reason to hire him! Again, plus many times more, thank you so much!”

–   Genee & David   :]

“We wanted to email and thank you and your friends for your excellent service and professionalism on Saturday. The same day edit was amazing. It blew our expectations for something that could be done in a few hours.”

Thank you so much for spending the day with us! =) We’ve been watching the same day edit over and over again – and we both love it to pieces!!! You’ve captured our emotions so beautifully – for sure that will be one item in our treasure box.”

–   Carolyn & Adam   :]

“Thank you so much for all that you and Yen did on the day of the wedding. It wasn’t the most organized event and we really appreciate how you guys went beyond what you were there to do to make everything happen. We’re also super happy with the same day edit, so thank you!”

–   Leslie & Kevin   :]

“Thank you so much! You and Mai did a fabulous job and we’re extremely happy with your video. Everyone loved it!”

–   Tina & Bryan   :]

“Found 8 Kinds of Smiles via Facebook and got to work with a down to earth guy, Travis. It was a last minute request, and Travis was kind enough to accept. Service is great, very professional, and most importantly, he delivers what you’re looking for in photos or videos. My husband and I was very satisfied with the video clip and would recommend him anytime to anyone!!!”

–   Lucy & Tony   :]

“The video looked phenomenal! Thanks for all your hard work. We’re both feeling giddy inside. Thanks again for everything. We know you’ll be really successful in anything you do. Best of luck to you!”

–   Lisa & Kenn   :]

“If I could redo my wedding – the whole shebang…I would keep but a few vendors and Travis Do is at the top of my list. Travis and Sophia are simply amazing!  We had a few bad seeds for vendors BUT we really lucked out with Travis and 8kindsofsmiles. He really made up for what others lacked and luckily for me, he did me the honor of filming our wedding. Travis, from the bottom of my heart…thank you for the exceptional work that you do. You were a pleasure to work with and I will continue to praise your work to others!”

–   Katie & Ryan   :]

“They are an amazing group of wedding videographers, and I’m so glad I stumbled upon them because they made our day even more special if that was humanly possible. If you future brides & grooms use them, can you please let them know that you found them through the Muramoto(s). ps. you’re welcome too :D”

–   Anh & Matthew   :]

“I am in LOVE with our wedding dvd, which included highlights and extended cut!!! Travis and Ly did such a phenomenal job and we are so truly grateful to have had them a part of our big day. They were with us from morning until night and going strong the entire time… so comfortable and easy to work with them! The final product… WOW!!! The highlights and extended cuts told our story perfectly. The editing was flawless and the music selection could not have been anymore on the money. The DVD packaging/artwork were exquisite.  We are 110% beyond satisfied that we decided to have 8 Kind of Smiles capture our wedding day memories!!!”

–   Maggie & Ralph   :]

“Travis is awesome.  He did an amazing job on everything from the highlights, extended cut, dvd packaging and artwork, and most of all service.  He really tries to deliver something that you’ll be 100% happy with.  Book 8 Kinds of Smiles and you’ll find yourself replaying the videos over and over… and over and over and over……and over and over…..ahh i can’t stopp!!”

–   Rose & Tony   :]

“Thank you so much for everything, Travis! You did a great job! Hieu says its a tear jerker! ‘Mission Complete!’ =D.”

–   Hieu & Curbee   :]

“Thanks man .. we truly appreciate all of the love and energy you have invested in this .. it shows! I’ve always said that you haven’t made a good wedding video unless the bride cries .. and she did!”

–   Sylvia & Braelan   :]

“If you think you are talented, wait until you meet Travis, founder of 8 Kinds of Smiles.  Such a young man, but do not be fooled by his youthful appearance.  This guy knows what he is doing, does a quality job, and makes it look easy.  He made my husband and I three most amazing videos that we will cherish for life.  He also set up a photoboth at our reception, which he built himself! Of course, it was a huge success! Even my mom got in the booth.  And to top it off, Travis’ prices are so reasonable!  Truthfully, he gave us more than our photographer, and we paid much more for the latter.  I highly recommend you book him if you at all want a video of your big day!  You won’t be disappointed.”

–   Thao & Long   :]

“Travis and his team are amazing. We love our wedding highlights cut and our extended video! Our family and friends all enjoyed the videos as much as we did. He worked so well with our photographer and was professional the entire time; from the moment we first met to the day we recieved our videos. Travis and his team captured all the details and precious moments of our most special day. THANK YOU for making our memories last forever.”

–   Marida & Regulo   :]

“You did such an amazing job! Way cool/professional to work with and exceeded our expectations. We are blessed to have found you. You took time to get to know us and with that you were able to truly capture our personality and all the memorable moments on our wedding day. Our wedding is forever captured so that we may share this with our family, friends, and future kids… I don’t think anyone could have done it better.”

–   Vivian & Kenny   :]

“Travis’ work is amazing to say the least. He’s just starting off now but his work resonates that of a seasoned wedding videographer. He’s kind of like a ninja that day–capturing moments and details without you knowing. He’s everywhere without being noticed, exactly what you need in a videographer. We highly recommend him for all your event and wedding videography needs!”

–   Thao & Robert   :]

“Travis went extra miles to make sure he can provide us a perfect wedding video by showing up super early before each ceremony took place and stayed until the very end to capture every special moment there was. Travis works amazingly quick, and within a week, we were able to see a draft version of our wedding video clip. Travis will work with you for any changes and/or editing until you’re completely happy with the video. Travis is punctual, professional and reliable. We love our wedding video. We highly recommended Travis.”
